Another good week here at St. C’s, with the building being particularly busy. The range of activities which take place each week is staggering – from Baby Ballet to Tae Kwon Do. Our own Noah’s Ark and Moses Basket are proving increasingly popular and it only two weeks until we launch our Place of Welcome enterprise.
This Sunday we were thinking about the story of the wise and foolish builders from Luke 6:46-49. This passage is essentially the same as the one found in Matthew. However it differs in that Matthew focuses on where a person build’s their life, Luke talks about wisdom coming from our putting down deep foundations in Jesus. We shared this in our Explore Together Worship in a variety of ways. We were also given Galatians 6 as a word from God – please read it and see if it speaks to you.
This Sunday our young people (C.I.A) made the journey to the Church of the Holy Nativity in Mixenden for their latest ‘Rock Mass’ event. We were greeted by smoke, incense and the sound of the Lenny Kravitz song – ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way?’ The evening centred on the story of the Good Samaritan; this was presented in some very interesting ways. It was an interesting experience for all of us.
A simple prayer for us to share this week. Every day we are faced with many choices – decisions great and small. I can help if we ask God to help us in our decision making, because the more our thoughts echo his the ways the better disciples will we be. Take time to be quiet when you say this prayer – give God time to speak to you through these words and may the Lord hear our prayers.
PRAYER OF THE WEEK
give us the strength to make the right choices throughout the day.
Help us to appreciate all the people with whom you have gifted us.
Give us the strength to say sorry when we are in the wrong
and to be prepared to forgive those who have hurt us
so we can come to the end of the day with no regrets. Amen
